Friday Die Day

Hello friends

It's Friday Die Day!
Today I'm featuring Lonely Hearts.
This is a Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® Decorative Strips die,
it consists of two parts - inset and border and the approximate die measurements are:

Inset: 5⅝ x 2⅛“
Border: 5½ x 1⅞“

This is how it looks cut/embossed.
You also have the option of die cutting the border alone and..
placing it behind to make a very effective background.
For my card I chose to use the die cut without a coloured background and went for a
palette of pale blue and white - a little bit Wedgewood -like.
The background is created with 5 x 7 Matting Basics B.
Before I affixed the die cut vertically, I inserted ribbon through the
filigree parts and secured at the back.
I then selected Bitty Blossoms and created three flowers and leaves.
Best Wishes stamped and cut into a banner.
Positioned those and voila!  Finished.
Some close up pics.

Lonely Hearts is available on the website here.

Also, I should mention, if you are ever in doubt regarding the sizes of dies -
click on the links whenever I name them and on the website I will have listed
the measurements.

And, another tip - if you are unsure if a die has been discontinued, pop along
to the Spellbinders website and type the die name in the search facility.
If it's still available on their website then is has not been discontinued.

Take care friends, wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Good morning Christine
A very pretty card today. I love blue and white together, they are such a crisp colour combination. The die is very pretty and of course bitty blossoms give any project that special touch.
Enjoy your day
